The topic “Journalism, Representation and the Public Sphere” is 
dedicated to the fundamental question: How do journalism, the various 
representations and public spheres of European cultures and societies 
change? This volume consists of the intellectual work of the 2014 
European Media and Communication Doctoral Summer School, organized in 
cooperation with the European Communication Research and Education 
Association (ECREA) at the ZeMKI, the  Centre for Media, Communication 
and Information Research of the University of Bremen, Germany. The 
chapters cover relevant research topics, structured  into four sections: 
“Journalism”, “Representations and Everyday Life”, “Public Sphere, Space 
and Politics”, “Rethinking Media Studies” and “Academic  Practice”.

Contributors are (in alphabetical order): Bertrand Cabedoche, Nico 
Carpentier, Andreas Hepp, François Heinderyckx, Magnus Hoem Iversen, 
Leif Kramp, Katrin Laas-Mikko, Maria Murumaa-Mengel, Georgina Newton, 
Hannu Nieminen, Alexandra Polownkikow, Pille Pruulmann-Vengerfeldt, 
Irena Reifová, Maria Schreiber, Saiona Stoian, Ebba Sundin, Simone 
Tosoni and Eimante Zolubiene. The book additionally contains abstracts 
of 41 doctoral projects that were discussed at the 2014 European Media 
and Communication Doctoral Summer School.

The European Media and Communication  Doctoral Summer School brings 
together a group of highly qualified doctoral students as well as senior 
researchers and professors from a diversity of European countries. The 
main objective of the fourteen-day summer school is to organize an 
innovative learning process at doctoral level, focusing primarily on 
enhancing the quality of individual dissertation projects through an 
intercultural and interdisciplinary exchange and networking programme. 
This said, the summer school is not merely based on traditional 
postgraduate teaching approaches like lectures and workshops. The 
summer  school  also  integrates  many  group-centred  and  individual 
approaches, especially an individualized discussion of doctoral 
projects, peer-to-peer feedback — and a joint book production.

The publishing of this book was supported by the University of Bremen, 
the European Communication Research and Education Association (ECREA) 
and the Slovene Communication Association.
